Hedley actually plays this song in key of Bb, with the B Major chord positions and 
their guitars tuned down a half step. But I posted this tab because I was 
frustrated taking the time to tune down just to play this song and tune back up. 
This is the same key, just with different chord positions. Enjoy!

Capo: 1st Fret

Intro: D E D E

A                        D
Don't believe everything happiness says
A                         D
Nothing feels better than hiding these days 
A           D            A                D
We bury our fears in the drinks, in these tears
        F#m        E              D          E
For the days we believed we could fly

A                         D
Call up your brothers and sisters and friends
A                                    D
We'll go back to the place where the night never ends
        A          D          A           D
We'll remember the fires, the burning car tires
    F#m        E               D          E
Boy how in the hell did we get here?

    A                     D
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      A                            F#m        E
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how 
A                            D
Cavalier we used to be, that beautiful insanity
    A
The apathy's surrounding me
F#m              E             D    E   D     E
Don't close your eyes or we'll fade    away 

 A                D
Over and over and over again 
       A                       D
We sat down for a minute, grew up into men
          A            D        A            D
Now we're putting out fires and changing car tires
    F#m    E               D       E
Man how in hell did we get here?

    A                     D
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      A                            F#m        E
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how 
A                            D
Cavalier we used to be, that beautiful insanity
    A
The apathy's surrounding me
F#m              E
Don't close your eyes or we'll 

G     D        A
Fade away this time
           F#m          
And we'll never get back what we 
G     D            E
Gave away, when we still have that fire in our eyes
A                        D
Don't believe everything happiness says
A                       D
Nothings as real as our old reckless ways
        A            D
When we drink by the fires
    A           D
The burning car tires
    A              D
Bad girls and good liars
    A           D
The dreams we'd conspire
    F#m          E
The days we went crazy 
    A               D
The nights wild and hazy 
    F#m        E               D        E
Man how in the hell did we get here?

    A                     D
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      A                           F#m        E
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how
